It was only a matter of time before other sports bras trickled into the market slipping in pockets where they could. Because honestly, there has been a need ever since the iPhone. You may have seen the latest contender featured on the latest episode of ABC’s “Shark Tank”.  The BoobyPack,  proudly proclaimed “Fanny Pack for your Rack” fully equipped with waterproof  side pocket to stash your phone (and durable rubber zipper to completely chaff your underarm if you ever did any kind of cardio workout). The high margins on this $55 bra caught the attention of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and businesswoman Barbara Corcoran. “Shark Tank” is an American reality television show by ABC where aspiring entrepreneurs are contestants who pitch their business to investors, also known as “Sharks.”  Yet beware, the only thing that might be eaten alive is your underarms, in the event you wear the Boobypack in a marathon.

SWOOB bras are so flattering, you’ll forget they even have pockets.  Sleek, secure, chic – you’ll forget you even have your phone with you until it rings. Sports bras with pockets aren’t an entirely new concept, but having a design that is functional and comfortable for smart phones is a new concept.  Top name brands like “Lululemon Run: Stuff Your Bra II” and The North Face Women’s Stow-N-Go High Impact Sports Bra (View Here) were only designed for smaller items like fuel gels or keys – perhaps more ideal for a marathon or other situation where you may not need an actual full blow cell phone with you.  The BoobyPack  and JoeyBra Sports Bra’s both stashes your cell phone in the side of the bra under your armpit. While both of these companies were major innovators, coming out before NorthFace – any runner or long distance athlete knows this is a major no no.  Any extra material or even rough inseams in the inner arm cause major chaffing on long runs.  Especially adding any extra bulk of phones, keys or credit cards – even a low impact workout of yoga or pilates might suffer in flexibility or comfort (imagine a cell phone digging into your side while doing those extended side stretches). There is also question as to how much of an advantage this is over the arm band, as the chord (if you used it as an mp3 player, would also get tangled in your arm). Stowing a phone on the side of a bra would never work for a distance runner, or even a jogger.

Technical Yoga Gear to Slouchy Pullovers and Lounge Pants

pull-VI-1The BoobyPack (FannyPak for your Rack) sports bra has a zipper side pocket for phones/wallets and comes in sizes from Small to Extra large with two styles crop-top style or tankini tops. This is likely appropriate for hikes, walks on the beach or as advertised on the Shark Tank Episode “Dancing”.  The BoobyPack doesn’t necessarily reflect the qualities of a fitted sports bra in terms of catered cup sizes and high quality materials needed to offer the support for for high or moderate impact sports – yet came across more as a piece of loose apparel.  The side zipper would likely cause an uncomfortable amount of chaffing given any type of cardio workout. While the piece looks comfortable, and an attractive day to day piece to wear while hiking or rock climbing even, the piece also did not fit tight enough to offer enough coverage for a yoga workout where one would need a material with the flex and movement to offer not only support, but move with the body to offer coverage.

What has always set SWOOB sports bras apart from the competition SWOOB is a company that specializes in Sport bras for women specifically designed to hold cell phones and iPhones while running, Yoga or any activity. Your phone won’t fall out of the SWOOB sports bra whether you are upside down or doing high impact cross train sports.

Living a Happy Healthy Lifestyle. Swoob Fit.

While other bras with pockets have been out on the market for a while, the media has taken favor to Swoob. From NBCs Today Show to SHAPE magazine, Swoob has caught the attention of the media for their quality product consistently producing fashion forward designs and high performance active wear that get the job done.  Yet it’s more than that.  Swoob cares.  Dedicated to fitness and women’s health, Swoob has a a noticeably different attitude in how it markets to women.  Their entire business is focused around how to help women live happy, healthy, and strong – and it shows through their marketing ads and strong community following.  There is also something to say about buying from a company that specializes in producing a specific product. Especially when it comes to protecting something as expensive as a phone.  Swoob fit offers so many different styles and sizes and colors in sports bras from extra small 32 A to 40″ D.  As all women know, it can be difficult to find a the right fit with the right amount of support – particularly for high impact sports.  Yet with the wide selection of fabrics and styles, from racerbacks to wide straps – Swoob caters to the spectrum when it comes to activities and sizes. We aren’t the only ones who were impressed, SWOOB was featured on the NBC Today Show on 10/15/2013 – a Milestone for a Kicktarter company only launched a few months prior. Watch SWOOB highlighted on the Today show here.

 WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT SWOOB

Breast-Cancer-Ribbon-PaintA controversial topic surrounding sports bras with pockets is cell phone radiation. Swoob takes the issue of breast cancer very seriously, and unlike other sports bras with pockets – Swoob has addressed the issue head on by incorporating a solution right into the fabric. Swoob is committed to taking every precaution when it comes to making high quality products that protect and and control exposure to potential cancer risks.  Swoob’s founder, Kyle Muir, lost his grandmother due to breast cancer. “Though studies have not yet proven a correlation between cell phone use and cancer, the research is young and admittedly incomplete,” Kyle said. The company has been diligently partnering with fabric manufacturers to find solutions to mitigate radiation exposure risks. Finding optimal apparel fabrics that shield from potentially harmful signals is a priority.  Swoob’s commitment to breast cancer awareness and prevention is built right into their product with the Panther Protective Sports Bra , featuring radiation protective fabric.

 Introducing Panther Protective Sports Bra

Amy-VNot only a fresh take on active wear, Swoob offers the only sports bra with pockets with a real solution when it comes to mitigating the risk of exposure to cell phone radiation. Other sports bras with pockets offer no protective materials to shield against cell phone radiation, which would require users to turn off their phones while working out, or purchase another piece of equipment like the Pong Anti-Radiation Phone Case for an Additional $59.99 dollars.  SWOOB is the only sports bra with pockets that has a radiation resistant fabric to help shield against cell phone radiation.

 

 Cell Phone Radiation Protective Fabric

The added radiation protection doesn’t compromise comfort. It is important to mention that though the bra has protective shielding properties, the Panther protective sports bra is just as comfortable, flexible and durable as any of the other Swoob sports bras. Movement is not restricted in this sports bra, even with the shielding properties and high quality technical fabric. However, what is it that is being shielded against and are the claims real?

Management at Swoob has focused their efforts on breast cancer prevention in producing The Panther Protective Sports Bra. This bra is the first sports bra to shield and protect against breast cancer. At the same time, the sport bras racerback design is flattering and made of high quality technical fabric. The bra is the perfect fitness outfit addition for breast cancer prevention and is great for runners or others participating in high performance high-impact workouts. The black technical fabric is made of high quality polyester spandex that is not see through. The fabric has a giving, yet tenacious stretch that feels durable. The bra material is durable, resilient and a quality that will  last.

BlackProtective-IIBreast Cancer Prevention

The  Panther Protective Sportsbra claims to aid in breast cancer prevention by shielding harmful radiation fromRadiofrequency (RF) and Electromagnetic Fields (EMF’s). To make it simple, RF are radiowaves that carry a variety of invisible currents carrying radio signals most commonly used in cellular communication, where as EMFs typically form around or transmit from charged objects. To combat these invisible forces, the bra interior is lined with a soft stretch silver-plated fabric with proven shielding properties to reduce the harmful effect of cell phone radiation. The Swoob sports bra includes three interior pockets to stow your smartphone, keys, and energy gels. The bra pockets are lined with the same shielding fabric.

Reduce Your Exposure to Harmful Wireless Radiation

BlackProtective-IIIRadiated Power is a measure of the radiation your mobile devices are emitting. Radiated power isn’t necessarily all bad, it’s what gives you  a strong mobile connection on your cell phone.  The controversy is whether or not having that strong radiation right next to your chest can have negative repercussions down the road.  Truth is, better save than sorry.

The bra’s shielding performance is rated at 30-50 dB and tested from 1-10 GHz. Since everything wireless is regulated by government at 2.4 GHz Swoob Protective sports bra is rated to shield most if not all wireless signals. Since the bra is super comfortable and made of high grade fabric it is a great sports bra for high performance activities like running, dancing, and workout classes. At the same time, the racerback design looks great and would be perfect for yoga beginners, running beginners, or those starting their fitness journey in other ways. Swoob is known for its sports bras with pockets and also has a line of comfy leggings and capri leggings.

Comfort and Protectionswoobero

The Panther Protective Sports Bra seems inspired from the capris and leggings because it is just as comfortable for workouts and incorporates the same quality of high performance technical fabric blend as Swoob’s leggings and capri leggings. The bra design is similar to Swoob’s Idona Sports Bra with pockets. The main difference between the two bras is the type of fabric used. The Panther Protective Sports Bra has the same wide straps and sits on the shoulders in a comfortable way. The high performance fabric is double layered creating a supportive and flattering full coverage coverage. Expect to use this bra and reuse this bra even after washing multiple times.

Chic and Practical

cute workout clothes and sports bra outfits

Women have been stashing away goods in their bras since they were invented, everything from post it notes to credit cards.

The hardcore athlete wouldn’t want to admit it, but you’ve probably headed out on a run with essentials stashed away in some sweaty, less than ideal places.  So what’s a girl to do? If you’re going to run  serious miles, you need to have essentials with you. A fuel gel to keep you going strong on the trail, or a cell phone in the event of an emergency. Featuring a center front pocket to stow away your smart phone and two side pockets to stow away your keys, credit card, chapstick or other essentials that you’d have to carry or leave behind.  Compatible with Androids, iPhones or Blackberries, the water resistant materials and sweat-wicking fabric keep you and your phone dry during any workout.  So don’t worry about sweating your way to a broken iPhone.

Practical and Fashionable

Long gone are the days of tying keys to your shoe laces, wearing you key ring around your finger during your run, wearingbulking arm bands for your iPHone or Mp3 Player or the college days of stashing keys in the bushes (we’ve all done it). Not to mentioned those still sporting fanny packs.

There are plenty of us who have been putting goods in sports bras without pockets, only to find out our keys fell out somewhere along the way on our run home – or even worse have broken phones or iPods to show for it.  Just the key imprint on your skin is annoying enough.

Thanks to Swoob, they’ve developed a cutting edge product – a high quality sports bra we’d already buy (that almost looks like a fashion statement), eliminating the need waste money on any extra gizmos/belts and finally gives us the confidence that our things our secure no matter how vigorous the workout.

Additional Information on Cell Phone Radiation and Breast Cancer Risks

swoobiero

The risk of breast cancer from cell phones originates from Radiofrequency (RF) and Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs). The World Health Organization is taking the public health risk of cell phone related cancer risk, especially breast cancer, very seriously.
The World Health Organization (WHO) was established way back in 1948 as a special unit
of the United Nations to serve as a directing and coordinating authority for world health. The
organization is primarily responsible for “providing leadership on global health matters, shaping
the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy
options, providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends.”
According to the World Health Organization, “While an increased risk of brain tumours from
the use of mobile phones is not established, the increasing use of mobile phones and the lack
of data for mobile phone use over time periods longer than 15 years warrant further research
of mobile phone use and brain cancer risk. In particular, with the recent popularity of mobile
phone use among younger people, and therefore a potentially longer lifetime of exposure, WHO
has promoted further research on this group and is currently assessing the health impact of RF
fields on all studied endpoints.”
